Puerto Rico: A Colonial Experiment

By Raymond Carr
New York University Press, 1984
477 pp.

Judicial and non-polemical and researched in great depth, this historical and current account of Puerto Rico and its ties to the United States is a fine contribution to a subject which is continuously pertinent. The author points out the dilemmas of a people who are neither full-fledged Americans nor members of a self-sufficient community, but he asserts that the immediate problems, which are severe, are economic rather than political.
